While we wait for this year’s event, we’re featuring videos of some of the 100+ talks from CppCon 2015 for you to enjoy. Here is today’s feature:
C++: How I learned to stop worrying and love metaprogramming
by Edouard Alligand
Summary of the talk:
Horrible software engineering technique conceived in the forge of Hell or the Only True Way of doing C++ in 2015, template metaprogramming and its cohort of companion techniques are sure to create animation in a group of programmers.
What if we were to tell you that an actual software product, actually sold to real customers and in production for now several years has been built on it? What if we were to tell you that a lot of advanced template techniques helped us to build a better software faster?
This talk is all about real life examples of template metaprogramming, why they are useful and when and how you could use them in your own projects.
